This route squeezes in between Golden Nugget and Golden Gloves. The crack of Golden Nugget is off. Mantle onto the ledge after bolt 2 and continue with easier climbing.

4 out of 5 stars Crack is off.

Original route goes onto the ledge after bolt 2. You can make it harder by staying on the face till you can mantle and clip a bolt of the left neighboring route. You don't miss much of the original climb.

3 out of 5 stars soft

as much as I love to say that it was 5.11a to boost my own ego, the entire pinnacle area's ratings are very soft. This is probably only a 10c/d.

Grade depends on what holds you do or don't use from the crack I imagine... I avoided the crack, felt like the 11c the book promises, invariably easier w/ the crack. Fun either way on nice rock.

The crux at the start of this climb is very reachy.
